As of 2012, this is the reason for climbers to come here. With its >1 hr. approach, don't expect crowds. If you arrive in the autumn, you won't be alone, however: a stone's throw from the cliffs lies private property, all of it hunting clubs, whose members gleefully ply the woods below for game. Bright colors are strongly recommended during hunting season.

Follow the herd path described for West Mtn. Ridge all the way to this southernmost cliff.
